People hang by wires trying to escape massive Dhaka Tower fire


Rescue operations are underway to save as many people as possible as a 22-story building in the Bangladesh capital of Dhaka burns.

According to CNN, five people are dead and 60 injured. Those numbers are expected to rise.

The fire has ripped through the FR Tower in the city’s commercial area.

Video from the scene shows people scaling wires along the side of the building to escape the flames.

Witnesses below have even seen people jump several flights, some possibly to their death.

More than 20 trucks and 100 firefighters are working to put the flames out, though they are nearly in control.

Officials have not said what started the massive fire.

This is the second time in two months that the city has seen a massive fire rip through one of it’s building.

In February, 67 people were killed when a fire tore through an apartment building.
